ARMCHAIR ODYSSEY

 

 

Armchair Odyssey focuses on viewing genre television series.  The group meets at the home of Association members Philip De Parto and Pamela Webber in Waldwick, New Jersey at 7:00 PM on the first Friday of each month.  Multiple (three for hour-long shows, five for half-hour series) episodes are shown in succession.  The primary focus is on current and recent series, although older shows will slip in from time to time.

Original Armchair Odyssey Text:

 

The Armchair Odyssey is a group that came about by accident.

 

During the early years of the Association, we discovered that a number of members were arriving at the meeting late because they were watching STAR TREK, THE NEXT GENERATION from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM and then leaving for our meeting which commenced at 8:00 PM. Our solution was to set up a television in the building so that our devoted Trekkers could watch the show on site and not have to race down the highway to attend the gathering.

 

As the years went by a variety of science fiction shows airing in the hours before the meeting starting time came and went. Eventually, there were interesting shows occupying both the 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM and the 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM timeslots. It was at this point that the club made it an official event and invited everyone to come down early and enjoy an Armchair Odyssey of science fiction space exploration.

 

At the present time there are no must-see science fiction shows running in our area during these timeslots and so we have closed the Armchair Odyssey.  Our Ice Nine discussion is held in its place.
